Colossus Actor Talks Deadpool 2 and Confirms Shatterstar

We got a second trailer for Deadpool 2 aka The Untitled Deadpool Sequel and there were a couple of moments that made fans sat up and took notice. While in the US trailer we couldn’t see him in the trailer Stefan Kapičić as Colossus does appear in a very brief scene. We see the two of them hugging and Deadpool copping a feel of Colosses’ butt because of course. Kapičić did an interview with Inverse and talked about the trailer and Colossus’ place in the story.

“I was surprised they put that in the trailer,” Kapičić says, laughing. “That’s the relationship between Deadpool and Colossus. Colossus is trying to make him a better person, to stop being childish. Stop doing crazy things. This scene we see in the trailer, that’s the picture of their relationship.”

Which is very true. Colossus made for an excellent “straight man” to Deadpool’s style of comedy. It made for some of the funniest moments in the movie and fans will be happy to hear that that dynamic hasn’t changed much.

“Deadpool is hard to change. Colossus is an old school superhero. He’s trying to make [Deadpool] a better man, an X-Man. But the thing is, Deadpool is doing his own thing.” Kapičić says this makes Colossus “nervous” in the sequel.

Deadpool 2 X-Force team including Shatterstar

Fans were surprised by one scene in particular where Deadpool was surrounded by a bunch of people. They recognized Domino, played by Zazie Beetz, but there were other faces including what looked like Terry Crews as an unknown character and someone behind him that some thought looked like Shatterstar. In a move that Kapičić probably wasn’t supposed to reveal he says that we are seeing Terry Crews and the person behind him is indeed Shatterstar.

“That’s not CGI of Terry Crews, that is Terry Crews,” Kapičić says. “You can see it clearly.” Kapičić then follows up with a surprise: “You can see behind him, Shatterstar, a really cool thing for people to geek out.”

Did we get a look at the roster for that X-Force movie Fox is making? Crews could be playing the character G.W. Bridge who made his first appearence in X-Force (Vol. 1) #1 in 1991 and he’s a creation of Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. Shatterstar is also a Nicieza and Liefeld creation and has been on the X-Force team in the past. As for who is behind Domino we can’t tell.

At the moment the reason we haven’t seen a lot of Colossus is that they’re still working on his special effects.

“Two days ago I was working for like, seven, eight hours a day with Ryan. We are still in the process of making it [as] perfect we can,” he says.

According to Kapičić, Colossus, who played a pretty minor role in the first film, will play a much larger role in the second film.

“Colossus is one of the most important characters, besides Deadpool and Cable, and you will see why,” Kapičić teases. “ Colossus is important for this story. People who love Colossus are going to be crazy. All these new characters, so many surprises in this trailer. This is just the beginning.”

We’ve probably just scratched the service of what The Untitled Deadpool Sequel has to offer. The movie comes out in May so we can expect the marketing to kick into overdrive any day now and we’ll no doubt see more footage before the release date.
